Spine Research and Treatment

Research is central to the Los Angeles Minimally Invasive Spine Institute’s mission of bringing cutting edge spine care to our patients, and reflects our interest in carrying on scientific and educational work, in addition to our clinical focus. This is what sets us apart as an institute, and not just another spine practice. Since our start in the Los Angeles area in 2005 we have endeavored to deliver access to clinical research that can make a meaningful difference in people’s lives. We have participated in device trials, medication trials and trials sponsored by the prestigious National Institutes of Health.  Below are our active spine trials.
